Rays' Willy Adames: Out of Saturday's lineup

Rays' Willy Adames: Goes deep in key win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in a win over the Red Sox on Monday.

Adames launched the second of two fourth-inning homers for the Rays, with the shortstop's round tripper, which came with Kevin Kiermaier aboard, snapping a 4-4 tie. Adames is carrying a five-game hitting streak and has come alive at the plate in the second half overall, slashing .278/.340/.477 across 239 plate appearances since the All-Star break.

Rays' Willy Adames: Slugs 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in an extra-innings win over the Red Sox on Saturday.

Adames launched a mammoth 462-foot shot to center in the seventh, extending the Rays' lead to 3-1 at the time. The young shortstop is generating strong production as the season winds down and the Rays chase a playoff spot, as he's now reached safely in 11 of the last 12 games in which he's logged at least one official at-bat.

Rays' Willy Adames: Comes through with game-winning hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Friday's extra-innings win over Boston.

Adames delivered an RBI double in the seventh inning to tie the game, and he pushed across the game-winning run in the bottom of the 11th with a single to left field. The 24-year-old shortstop sits with 18 home runs, 48 RBI and four stolen bases over 145 games this season for Tampa Bay.

Rays' Willy Adames: Cranks 18th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two more runs scored during Friday's win over the Angels.

Adames was the first of three Tampa Bay batters to go deep off Andrew Heaney in the third inning. The 24-year-old shortstop did so with a solo shot, marking his 18th long ball of the season while batting .252/.314/.412.

Rays' Willy Adames: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is not starting Thursday against the Rangers, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Adames will head to the bench for what appears to be a routine day off following a string of 10 straight starts. Daniel Robertson is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth in his place.

Rays' Willy Adames: Raps out pair of hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-3 with a double and a run in a win over the Blue Jays on Friday.

Adames snapped out of a 2-for-17 slump that had covered his first five games of September with Friday's multi-hit effort. The young shortstop's double was his first extra-base hit of the current month as well, and he's only hit safely courtesy of anything other than a single on eight occasions since the calendar flipped to August (124 plate appearances).

Rays' Willy Adames: Launches 17th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Astros on Wednesday.

Adames made things interesting in the ninth inning with a 338-foot shot to left that plated Avisail Garcia, bringing the Rays to within two. The 23-year-old has reached safely in seven of his last eight games, and Wednesday's production pushed his August average to an impressive .310 across 94 plate appearances.

Rays' Willy Adames: Drives in three during win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-4 with a pair of run-scoring singles and a solo home run in a win over the Orioles on Thursday.

Adames' resurgent month continued in fine fashion Thursday, with the young shortstop churning out his second three-hit game in the last three contests and leaving the yard for the first time since Aug. 6. His latest successful night at the plate boosted his slash line to .252/.314/.412, with his batting average now at its highest point since July 3.

Rays' Willy Adames: Raps out three hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-4 with two runs in a loss to the Mariners on Tuesday.

Adames' bat sprung back to life Tuesday, snapping him out of a four-game, 1-for-15 skid. The young shortstop is still hitting an impressive .305 during August after generating just a .193 figure in July, although he's laced just a modest four extra-base hits during the current month.

Rays' Willy Adames: Three-hit night in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 3-for-4 with an RBI single, a double, a walk and two runs in a win over the Padres on Tuesday.

Adames' second-half surge continued in impressive fashion Tuesday, as he played a part in nearly half of the team's runs for the night. The shortstop is now hitting .333 (18-for-54) with three doubles, five home runs, 10 RBI, eight walks, one hit-by-pitch and 14 runs across the 64 plate appearances he's logged in his last 16 games. Moreover, with a modest two round trippers and five RBI through his first 11 games of the month, he's nevertheless just one shy of matching the tally he accumulated in each category during all of July.

Rays' Willy Adames: Blasts 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 1-for-3 with a home run, a walk and two RBI in Wednesday's 7-6 win over the Blue Jays.

Adames has provided one third of his 15 home runs on the season in the last nine games, rewarding those who stuck with him during what had been a mostly brutal July. He'll stick in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale, but his role as the Rays' No. 9 hitter hinders his run-scoring and run-producing upside to some degree even while he's wielding a hot bat.

Rays' Willy Adames: Continues power surge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 8-6 win over the Marlins.

Adames has mashed four of his 14 home runs on the season in the last six games, a welcome sight for fantasy managers who stuck with him through his extended slump coming out of the All-Star break. He'll remain in the lineup for Sunday's series finale, manning shortstop while batting ninth, per Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network.

August 2, 2019 01:52 AM
Rays' Willy Adames: Slugs 13th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs overall in a win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Adames' bat finally started to show some signs of life at the plate as July wound down, as he went 6-for-17 with a double, three homers and five of his six RBI for the month over the last five games. The modest sample of success will perhaps represent the start of a resurgence at the plate for Adames, who hit just .193 overall in July after generating an encouraging .273 figure in June.

Rays' Willy Adames: Blasts three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer in a 10-9 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Adames' homer was his first in July and came after he was just 2-for-25 in his last eight games. The 23-year-old still has a rather anemic .237/.298/.383 slash line for the season but is continuing to get regular playing time. He now has 11 home runs and 30 RBI over 355 at-bats.

Rays' Willy Adames: Sitting out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

With one hit and 11 strikeouts in 21 at-bats over his last six games, Adames has looked lost at the plate lately and may begin to lose playing time as a result. He'll be on the bench for the second time in six games while Joey Wendle takes over at shortstop.

July 19, 2019 04:20 PM
Rays' Willy Adames: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is not in the lineup Friday against the White Sox.

Adames had eight hits in the first five games since the All-Star break but has since gone hitless in two straight contests. Joey Wendle takes over at shortstop in his absence.

July 17, 2019 09:20 PM
Rays' Willy Adames: Running hot since All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames, who went 3-for-4 with two doubles in a loss to the Yankees on Tuesday, is 8-for-22 with four doubles, an RBI, a stolen base and two runs in the five games he's suited up since the All-Star break.

Adames' pair of two-baggers Tuesday pushed his July tally to four, exactly a quarter of his doubles total for the season. The current hot stretch is helping resurrect Adames' key offensive numbers after he opened the month going 2-for-27 with 13 strikeouts across seven pre-All-Star-break contests.

Rays' Willy Adames: Productive in narrow win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in a win over the Yankees on Monday.

Adames' multi-hit effort was his second over the first four games he's suited up for in the second half. The young shortstop's fantasy managers are looking for an offensive turnaround for Adames after he appeared to be trending upward as June concluded. The 23-year-old had boosted his average another 11 points to .253 during the month, but that number has been on a quick descent thus far in July. Even factoring in Monday's effort, Adames is just 7-for-45 in 11 games since the calendar flipped, already prompting a 14-point tumble in his average and a 21-point drop in his on-base percentage.

Rays' Willy Adames: Heads to bench for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adames is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Joey Wendle will receive the start at shortstop for Game 1 of the doubleheader. Adames had a nice return from the All-Star break as he recorded a multi-hit game with a double and an RBI in the Rays' 16-4 thrashing of the Orioles on Friday night. Look for Adames to be back at his normal starting role at short in the second game of the day.
